Description

Film, Faith, and Justice 2008 is a film and lecture series developed by The Other Journal and featuring eight (8) independent documentaries and films from the 2007-2008 Human Rights Watch Traveling Film Festival, many of them being premiered for the first time in Seattle.

Correlating speaker presentations and panel discussions will articulate personal and communal faith responses to modern issues of injustice such as poverty, violence, immigration, and social responsibility through the lens of the Christian tradition.

This forum is being hosted at Mars Hill Graduate School in downtown Seattle. It will feature keynote addresses from theologians, social advocates, and local community leaders, including:

Christopher Heuertz
Executive Director of Word Made Flesh

Dr. Eugene McCarraher
Dept. of Humanities & Augustinian Traditions, Villanova University

Rita Nakashima Brock, PhD
Award-Winning Author, Co-Director of Faith Voices for the Common Good

Dr. J. Kameron Carter
Associate Professor in Theology & Black Church Studies, Duke Divinity School

This event welcomes the public, community leaders, students, teachers, churches, non-profit organizations staff, and advocacy groups - anyone who is interested in exploring the theological implications of pursuing a vocation and lifestyle directed toward social justice.

Though the presentations and discussions will be presented primarily from Christian faith perspectives, people of all faiths and backgrounds are invited and encouraged to add voice to the conversations.
